The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

ASP Family Support Group for August 2013

ASPs monthly family support group sessions bring together parents, siblings and other family members to talk about their journey in living with autism. Participants share their experiences and draw enlightenment and strength from others going through the same challenges. We welcome members and non-members to this intimate gathering.

Ms. Gina Bermudo with son Nico

Our facilitator for the August 24 Family Support Group session is Gina Luna Bermudo. Mommy Gina is the producer and composer of the CD entitled, “Mga Awiting Alay sa Autismo,” a compilation of heartfelt compositions inspired by her two boys on the spectrum, Niko and Xandi. "Kaya Ko Rin” was made into MTV for the 10th National Conference on Autism. The Song “Why God,” is an often requested song for ASP events. Her CD was also featured in Forum Asia Magazine of LA, California USA. She also composed the theme song of the recent 12th National Conference and 2nd Southeast Asian conference on Autism entitled “Hope @ Home.” Her latest single “1Pangako” is the campaign song for the advocacy of Autism Society Philippines to stop the use of the word autistic as a slur. “1Pangako” was showcased during the 2nd Autism Network Congress in Brunei Darussalam where it was warmly received. The song is also played regularly in OFW Radio Kuwait. Gina is a former international flight attendant and she recently served as a resource person for Cebu Pacific Air and Philippine Airline in their effort to improve service for PWD with focus on Autism. Gina has also represented Autism Society Philippines in several conferences in the Philippines and abroad. She serves as ASP Trustee from 2010 to present. She graduated from Ateneo de Manila University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics Major in Computer Science. Her favorite role is a full-time mommy to the boys and a devoted wife to Lito.
